A huge thank you to the Wood Group team for enabling our HUET training to happen. We were all very impressed with the high quality of the course content, facilities and instruction. It is training that we hope we will never have to utilise, but it is comforting to know that we have quality training behind us should the occasion arise.
I have worked with Wood Group for the past 11years and have found their training to be of a very high standard.
I have used the company for both First Aid and Fire training for drivers from the Petroleum Industry.
The First Aid training involved between seven or eight hours of classroom work and an afternoon doing accident scenarios. Although the classroom work could have been very difficult for tanker drivers used to outside work the presenters managed to make the lessons interesting enough to hold the drivers attention through the whole day. The scenarios were held in workplace like surroundings and were truly realistic. These sessions were carried out with patients who were familiar with trauma situations and able to act out their parts realistically. The learning achieved in the scenarios was truly remarkable.
The fire training consisted of about a two hour classroom session then two BP hour practical training on a fire pad specifically designed for this purpose. I know of no other training facility in New Zealand where this sort of training can be carried out. For an industry where fire is a possible outcome this sort of training is invaluable.
It has been a pleasure to work with trainers with such a professional attitude and ability.

Wood Group are the company we turn to for training in New Zealand. We have been working with them since 2005, and found them to be very professional and organised. On many occasions Wood Group have been very accommodating when it comes to the needs of the offshore industry, putting on extra courses, bringing in trainers, and running weekend courses to assist us with getting crew trained at short notice during major recruitment campaigns.
Offshore Marine Services highly recommend Wood Group as a leading training provider in New Zealand.
I have been using Wood Group to assist in our safety requirements for some time now.
Wood Group works hard to develop a deep understanding of the training needs, objectives and needs of our business and has been involved in creating custom training suited to our requirements.
I find Wood Group’s instructors passionate about their work, enjoyable to deal with a very honest approach with a large network of contacts in the industry.
